NHS England announces preferred supplier of health and justice information services procurement

Patients in the health and justice sectors are set to benefit from improved continuous healthcare with a new contract being conditionally awarded to The Phoenix Partnership (TPP), to supply the health and justice information system in places of detention.

The new system will be launched from July 2016 and will mean patients in prisons, immigration removal centres, youth institutes and secure children’s homes will no longer have to wait for their medical records to be faxed over by their GP.

They will now, for the first time, be able to register for GP services in their secure facility.
